Abstract

In recent years new technologies have been developed to track user's motions, as the Leap Motion Controller for hands and wrist tracking. We propose a framework for children's hand, wrist and forearm rehabilitation at home and at hospital designed and developed in collaboration with the therapists of the De Marchi Pediatric Clinic in Milan. The framework contains an application with four serious games supporting hands and wrists rehabilitation, an application specific for the therapist to manage children's progresses remotely and a server to store data about the exercises' performed by children. We developed the framework with an iterative process, prototyping, testing and updating it basing on the children and therapists feedback. We performed five testing sessions with three children in the De Marchi Clinic, at the presence of a therapist and the child's parents, each session involved one child per time.
